Our after school program runs in partnership with generous funding and support by the New York City Department of Youth and Community Development (DYCD) and is open to all students in Kindergarten (who are at least 5 years old) through 5th grade at P.S. 32 and the surrounding community. Previously known as OST (Out of School Time), COMPASS (COMPrehensive After School System) is a revamped model of after school programming which seeks to integrate best practices and cater to the whole child.

According to the NYC DYCD website, key elements of all COMPASS NYC programs are:

  • Robust opportunities for youth to explore their interests and creativity
  • Intentional integration of Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematic (STEM) into traditional programming to expose them to content and future professions
  • Age-appropriate programming that is hands-on, project-based and aligned with educational standards
  • Environments that support social and emotional learning
  • High quality arts and sports instruction
  • Strategies that support youth and families during critical educational transitions
  • Emphasis on youth engagement and making learning fun

Our program aims to help youth build skills to support their academic achievement, raise their confidence, and cultivate their leadership skills through service learning and other civic engagement opportunities. Beyond STEM learning, we strive to integrate literacy into our classes and offer homework help, basic arts instruction, team building, dance and physical recreation. Good Shepherd Services is a leading youth development, education and family service agency with more than 80 programs that serve over 26,000 children, youth and families each year. Our after school program is an integral part of the local community with a long, proud history.

We offer programming from 3pm – 6pm Monday through Friday throughout the school year and, on during select days when school is closed, our program is open from 8am – 5pm. We are also open on select half days when P.S. 32 is not in session. You must commit to a minimum of 2 days per week.
